Garden waste collection is back for another year

Following the success of its Green Garden waste collection service last year, Hounslow Council will be running the popular scheme again this summer

Whether it�s grass clippings, twigs, small branches, weeds or other pruning detritus, the scheme will ensure that your the garden waste is put to good use - all material collected is sent for central composting, and the compost can be purchased from Space Waye, the Council�s Reuse and Recycling Centre, for £1.50 per bag.

Leaflets giving details of the scheme are being distributed this month, with collections taking place from mid-May to mid-November.

The leaflet will include an order form to purchase special biodegradable Garden Waste sacks for residents interested in participating in the scheme.

Residents with sacks remaining from last year will be able to use them once the service commences. This year sacks will NOT be sold from the Civic Centre or Glenhurst Road, but will be available to purchase by cheque or postal order through the post and over the telephone or via the Internet using a debit/credit card.

Anyone who has not received a leaflet or want more information on the scheme should contact the Recycling Team on 020 8583 5068 or email
